again, please tell me how “people not in labor force” are counted.

As I understand it, the government sends out questionnaires to some 60,000 households each month. One of the questions asks if there is anyone unemployed living there and has that person actively looked for work in the last four weeks.

If there is someone unemployed and that person has not actively sought employment, then he's out of the workforce, baby.
